Safer changeouts with these filter elements

VertexCore coalescing filter elements (photo) have a fixed extension that is welded to the element end cap, which allows maintenance staff to easily remove and replace elements without exposing their head, shoulders, torso or legs to a confined space. This design feature eliminates the widespread behavior of climbing into or reaching into filtration pressure vessels to remove or replace elements. The VertexCore extensions and hold-down rods, while facilitating element replacement, also provide a barrier to prevent operator entry, a positive reinforcement to confined-space safety regulations. The multi-layer elements feature removal efficiencies of 99.98% for particle sizes down to 0.3 μm with maximum carryover of 0.1 ppm. VertexCore elements can be retrofitted to existing pressure vessels to eliminate carryover created by inadequate element spacing of standard elements. — Clark-Reliance Corp., Strongsville, Ohio
